Having a nice day with a break from snow, we went over to Canada this past Saturday. Mostly for my wife to try and earn me some T parts money. In the parking lot when we got there I parked next to a new Pickup. I did not notice the brand.
We were in the casino at Gananoque for a little over and hour when the wife said she was ready to go back home. I usually ask her if she has won or lost but didn't today. She finally said that she nhad started with 2 Canadian $20.00 bills and hit a 1,500 dollar payout.
Back in the parking lot I looked at the sleek truck we had parked next to and the Badge said Lincoln and it surely did not look like a ford.
Must be something built in Canada and not available here.
Yes Lincoln does have a pickup. Not very many around and are fancy. To fancy to use for any kind of work. Question. Did you have to have a photo id to get into canada and a pass port to return to the US?
Tyrone, Passports are the easiest way back and forth to Canada. If you live in a border state, like Michigan or New York, you can usually get an enhanced drivers license that is good for US to Canada and back.
Yes I do have a passport and use it, but a friend who sometimes goes to Canada with us has what is called an enhanced driver's License which allows you to visit Canada or Mexico without a passport and return Your State Driver's License bureau should have details. Much much cheaper than a PP and a lot quicker to get. I believe here in NYS it is about $50.00 for 8 year DL. This is one time I approve of something the Government has done.
I'm sure glad you completed the story on how your wife was earning money for your Model T parts. You had me scared there for a minute.
Canada does have some interesting nightclubs. Several years ago my boss and I were in Detroit for a conference. We decided to go over to Windsor for some recreation. When entering Canada the gal border guard asked what our intention was for visiting. My boss replied we were going to pursue some Canadian culture. She smiled and told us to have a good time.
Gary: Are you talking about the "Windsor Ballet"? Dan
John, that truck you saw must have been a Lincoln LT. I'm surprised you never saw one in the states. I've seen many here in Canada although they are uncommon. I could drive for months and never see one. They are just a jazzed up and rebadged F150 and I believe they are discontinued. One thing I never liked was the fake tailights on the tailgate designed to make the lights look bigger. You can read more here.
John, I have seen a Lincoln pickup many times in Fowler, right on 812/58 near Gouverneur. I think it belongs to one of the owners of Tripp Fuel Co. in Fowler as it it usually parked there.
I didn't know they were only available in Canada.
Lincoln and Cadillac (Escalade) both build pick up trucks. Really not sure the cost of them is justified by the quality, but I suppose if you really need what some might perceive as a "status symbol".......whatever,.......harold
For a luxury truck, get a Packard. The civilian version even has a windshield.
"Ask the man who owns one!"
I have seen both Lincoln and Caddy pickups herein NH - Mass.
What next? A Ferrari, Lamborghini, or Rolls Royce PU?
I remember when a PU was for the working man and didn't cost a zillion dollars.
Here you go Fred. Now you get your Dom Perignon and caviar in bulk.
Dick, I guess you didn't notice I already posted that link 7 posts back.
